Chicago Debut: ULRIKA SPACEK w/ Holy Wave, Toosh

Tue, Oct 17 8:00PM

$20 Adv, $22 Dos + Fees | 21+

Ulrika Spacek return on June 2nd with the release of their second album, Modern English Decoration. Much like their debut album released in early 2016, the band chose to record, produce and mix the entirety of the record in their shared house – a former art gallery called ‘KEN’, so named because of a cryptic inscription found above the front door. Not just a studio and home, KEN is essentially the band’s hub, a space in which the surrounding ephemera of videos, artwork and even band photos are all created.

Holy Wave is a band of multi-instrumentalists from El Paso, Texas, USA. Since making a move to Austin in 2008, they have cemented themselves as a unique force in the national and international touring circuit. After perennial performances at Levitation (Austin Psych Fest) and countless tours and festival appearances in the USA, Europe, Latin America, and Africa, Holy Wave is poised to continue expanding into new spaces and places around the world.

Toosh makes rock music that tries to go somewhere else. With an impulse towards intentional and counter-intuitive rhythmic patterns and tempo changes, Toosh dances between stillness and pure chaos with elements of noise rock and post punk painted throughout. Their songs tackle concepts like racial capitalism, longing, dis/connection, queerness, and gender identity with playful dual vocals. One might venture to say Toosh’s orientation is disorientation.
